Planning Application Submitted for Court Farm Mews in Westbury on Trym, Bristol

A planning submission has been made for a mixed-use development on a deteriorating brownfield site in Westbury on Trym, bringing five new homes and a commercial unit.

The land at Court Farm Mews has previously been used for private garages and a commercial unit but it is now under- used, deteriorating and in urgent need of redevelopment.

The proposed project is a mixed-use development of five 3/4-bed homes, set back behind a new commercial unit and designed to reflect the historic character of the Old Police Station fronting the High street.

Redeveloping this brownfield site for modern homes and attractive office space makes optimal use of an under-utilised and run-down property in the heart of Westbury on Trym.

The development will see a collaboration between Andrew Minto, Landhaven’s founder and Craig Short, of Craig Short Building Contractors. This is the second time that the pair will have worked together on a new development in Westbury On Trym.

"With a love of buildings and a passion for designing and building better homes, I founded Landhaven in 2015. Living and working locally myself, I’m looking forward to investing in the village by bringing beautiful new homes and a workspace to the local community."

"Following the success of our previous new homes in Westbury on Trym (cottages on Westfield Road), I look forward to working with Andrew again. I’m excited to bring my 15 years of building experience and expertise to another local project in the village."

Named Court Farm Mews as a nod to the land’s history as part of Court Farm, this project will bring biodiversity to the area again, through tree planting, lawns, bird boxes and bee bricks.
